Bully Prevention
    Bully Prevention


    All of the Hempfield elementary and middle schools have initiated a Bully Prevention Program. A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students (Olweus 1986; 1991). The following four rules form the core of this program:


    ·        We shall not bully other students.

    ·        We shall try to help students who are bullied.

    ·        We shall make a point to include students who become easily left out.

    ·        When we know somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.
